As announced by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA), seven members of Gordon College Field Hockey have been named to the 2010 Gladiator by SGI/NFHCA DIII National Academic Squad. The award recognizes field hockey student-athletes from all NCAA divisions who have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.30 or higher during the first semester of the 2010-2011 academic year.
Gordon recipients include captain and senior Veronica Pierce (West Hartford, Ct.), junior Ashley Moulton (Reading, Mass.), sophomores Eleanor Helai (Keene, N.H.) and Kelsey Spotts (Pittsford, Vt.), and freshmen Anna Bury (Huntingtown, Md.), Julie Moser (Cheltenham, Pa.), and Megan Wernig (Gilford, N.H.).Their efforts in the classroom also largely contributed to Gordon Field Hockey being named to the 2010 Gladiator by SGI/NFHCA DIII National Academic Team, a distinction given to programs with a team GPA of 3.0 or higher.
Coach Cory Ward is excited about the awards. “Each individual works incredibly hard on and off the field, setting the tone for how Gordon Field Hockey strives to be as a program. The fact that we have representation from each class is demonstrative of how everyone, regardless of age, can be a leader on this team.”
